Experimental study of the fluctuation theorem in a nonequilibrium steady state

Wang, Genmiao; Reid, James; Carberry, David; Williams, David; Sevick, Edith M; Evans, Denis


The fluctuation theorem (FT) quantifies the probability of second law violations in small systems over short time scales. While this theorem has been experimentally demonstrated for systems that are perturbed from an initial equilibrium state, there are a number of studies suggesting that the theorem applies asymptotically in the long time limit to systems in a nonequilibrium steady state. The asymptotic application of the FT to such nonequilibrium steady states has been referred to in the...[Show more]
